Bootscooting Across Wimberley TX

 The other day I made a trip to Wimberley with a friend that had never really seen it. Wimberley is an artistic town. "Bootiful Wimberley" was started in 2014 as a way to highlight the arts and to enhance cultural tourism. Sponsors and artists were eager to participate and, on Sptember 13, 2014 at a "Baring the Boots" party, 34 boots were presented to the public and then installed throughout Wimberley.  In May 2015, 18 more boots were added bringing the total to 50. You can find a map of the "boots" at the Visitor's Center and at many of the stores downtown. We only managed to find 16 boots on this trip but we will be back. So here is a pictoral presentation of our day....

Boots aren't the only art you will see in Wimberley. There is a little courtyard between and behind one of the stores on the square. You will find a very interesting "zoo" if you take a few minutes to stroll here.
